Strawberry Pop Tarts

These Homemade Strawberry Pop-Tarts are really tasty and your kids will adore them! I often get my kids together in the kitchen to make batches of these pop-tarts. I make the strawberry filling for these tarts by combining strawberry jam, cornstarch and water.

To make the tarts, start by preparing some dough. Roll into a pastry sheet and divide it into 9 equal pieces. Place some strawberry filling in the center of each piece. Place another piece of dough over the top and brush with beaten egg and milk. Gather any remaining scraps of dough and repeat the process to create more tarts. I was able to make 4 additional pop-tarts with the remaining dough. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes and that’s it! 

To make Homemade Strawberry Pop-Tarts, you will need the following ingredients:
